I collect recipes from my trips and love to recreate a taste of my travels when I get back home. Here are some of my favourites with a few from home.
It's giveaway time on The Travelbunny this week. I've teamed up with publishers Ryland, Peters and Small to offer one lucky reader a copy of Flavours of Sicily cookbook by Ursula Ferrigno.
Today is a very special day. World Gin Day. Gin has long been my tipple of choice so I was delighted to find out this week that there’s a whole day devoted especially to gin.
There’s a loaf that’s been baked underground in geothermal springs in Iceland for generations. It’s dark, dense, deliciously sweet and it’s called Hverabrauð or Thunder Bread.
Mouth-watering mezze recipe and a giveaway of Ghilli Basan's fantastic new book - Mezze Small Plates for Sharing. This beautiful book is packed with a myriad of mezze recipes with superb photography and fascinating insights into Basan's travels in Turkey and the Middle East.
There’s nothing better than the rosy glow a couple of shots of blackberry vodka impart on a crisp winter’s evening and the dark ruby colour makes it a perfect Christmassy tipple. Here's my recipe for a delicious Blackberry Vodka.
Aperitivo time in Italy and a recipe for Aperol Spritz. How to make the perfect summer's drink that I like to call 'sunshine in a glass'.
The cool, calm, quiet of the Consoli kitchen is a complete contrast to the clamour of Catania’s colourful market. The next part of the tour was to immerse ourselves into the flavours, cooking customs and rich history of Sicilian cuisine.
A recipe for Biscotti and a bit about that time I cooked up a delicious Sicilian feast with the help of Celebrity Cruises ambassador, Ben Fogle.
